Purple or violet is definitely the true punk color if you ask me. Nothing defines the term more than this. This color suits the brunettes or those with darker hair more. This can be a super cool style to sport. If you have curly hair, the loose curls sort, then what you can do is, just dye the end parts with a mix of the two shades of purple. Or if you want sport feathers then maybe you can color the part that falls on your for head. But no need to go overboard with the streaks. Leave some natural hair color when you color your hair with the mix.
Also you have different shades of purples you can choose from. If you are brunette and dusky, you can go for dark hues of purple. If you are fair and blonde, you can try neon ones. But it is totally up to you. You can be a blonde and still go for dark purple, you can be dusky and still go for neon purples. You just need the right attitude to flaunt purple hair.
